Simple Determination to Control

What Is Out Of Control

One of my favorite movie quotes is from Days of Thunder. “You want to control something that’s out of control? That’s what you said. Well I’m going to let you in on a little secret that almost everybody else automatically knows. CONTROL is an illusion you infantile egomaniac. Nobody knows what’s going to happen next-Not on a freeway, not on an airplane, not inside our own bodies and certainly not on a race track with 40 other infantile egomaniacs. Nobody knows and nobody controls anything. You’ve gotten a glimpse of that and you’re scared.”

There are definitely things we can’t control. We can’t control the decisions and actions of other people or change them. We can only do that with ourselves. There are some things we can control or change. We can control our attitudes. We can control whether or not we are happy, sad, or angry. To some extent, we can control our finances, our health, and our children. (Notice I said, “to some extent” because, even though we try to control our children, they have the ultimate control of how they act and behave).

Sometimes we just need to work on things we can control–what we cook, how clean our house is, where we spend our money, how we take care of our bodies, how we treat other people, what we do to increase our spirituality, and intelligence, and what we do with our time. If we can be persistent in spending even 10 minutes a day working on the things we can control, and not worry so much about things we can’t control, then maybe we just might feel a little less overwhelmed.

My Logo of connected rings and the Color Blue

  • Blue is my favorite color, mostly because that is the magnificent color of my husband’s eyes. My children also have eyes that are that amazing color of blue.
  • The Rings represent family ties. Family relationships are so important, even with our extended family. We are linked and connected from one generation to the next.


  • My heroes are the women of my ancestry including my mom and my aunts. I am who I am because of them. When I think of them, I think of their stubbornness, determination, persistence, and courage. They are strong women who have been tenacious in surviving their lives with mental and moral strength, courage, patience, stamina, determination, and stubbornness through unimaginable trials and struggles, and persevered with faith to endure to the end.
